How do you all get your fish home?
Where I fish they supply carrier bags, so I put a bit of lake water in the bag with my fish and tie a knot in the bag.
I'm lucky, in that my local water is only a fifteen minute drive from my house.
Normally, I will fish a four hour ticket, which entitles me...
I went to Norton Fishery today for a catch and release session.
The weather was not that good, but I took the chance to get out fishing just in case I have to stay indoors and start tying my own flies!
The place was very busy, so it seems people had the same idea as me.
It was windy for me...
As a beginner to fly fishing, I like to watch videos to help me understand what I should and should not be doing.
The problem I am finding, is that on YouTube, it appears to be videos of people fishing! No mention of what line, fly, etc they are using and why.
I am catching quite well at the...
From what I have read, you did really well not to knock him out!
Seeing as this fishery is so close to you it would be a shame to miss out fishing it!
The committee member should maybe become an ex-committee member at the next AGM
If you fish a large dry fly with a couple of flies underneath...
Thank you for all your advice.
I should have mentioned that this line if probably ten years old.
When we were going to Cornwall on holiday, one of our group mentioned the fly fishing, so I bought myself a 'Ready to go' kit.
I was at the Great Yorkshire Show last year.
We went on the first day and I had a casting lesson for five pounds.
Then I watched the fly casting demonstration.
It was a good show and watching them demonstrate casting with a fly rod, broom handle, wooden spoon and then with just their hand...
Has my floating line reached the end of it's life?
I have noticed lately that the top five feet or so of my floating fly line with braided loop attached in sinking.
Is there a way I can fix this problem?
Brand new to fly tying so need advice please.
I did the 'unmentionable' and received a fly tying kit for Christmas.
To be honest, I think it will suffice for my first fly tying adventures.
I am aiming to complete my first ever dry fly ready to use for when the weather improves.
Following on from a previous post of mine, I was wondering how many flies on different hook sizes would be the norm?
Would three hook sizes be the norm? For example, a size 14, size 12 and a size 10 hook for the same fly.
Even as a beginner I am amassing a pretty large collection of flies...
